Shots fired at apartment

■ A H APPY N EW

YEAR

Targeted attack, say RCMP Robert Freeman The Progress Chilliwack RCMP are investigating a report of “several shots” fired at an apartment unit early Sunday morning. It’s the second apartment shot up in Chilliwack since July. Police received a 911 call at about 5:40 a.m. Sunday after shots were fired at the apartment unit in the 45500-block McIntosh Drive. “The Chilliwack RCMP believe this incident was targeted towards the apartment,” Cpl. Lea-Anne Dunlop said in a news release. But she said the occupants of the apartment unit are not known to police, and there are no known links to drugs or organized crime at this point in the investigation. No one was injured in the shooting, and a police investigation continues. In July, at least 22 shots were fired into a third-floor apartment building located at the corner of Edward Street and Kipp Avenue. No one was injured in that shooting either. Anyone with information about the McIntosh shooting, or saw anything suspicious in the area, is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611. Anonymous tips can be made online to Crime Stoppers at www.chilliwackcrimestoppers.ca rfreeman@theprogress.com

Body found in Hope may be missing Chilliwack man Robert Freeman The Progress Friends and family of Robert Planje are hopeful a body found last Thursday near Hope will be positively identified so they can say good-bye to the 64-year-old man missing since Dec. 12. Police believe Planje was the victim of foul play, and have been searching since they were called

to his Chilliwack home in the Rainbow Trailer park on Dec. 13 by a report of an altercation. Police attended the residence, and found evidence of an altercation, but no one was home. However, later that day police recovered items on Ballam Road near the Fraser River thought to be linked to the missing man. An extensive search by police, including an RCMP dive team, and

by Planje’s friends found no further clues to his whereabouts. A “person of interest” was interviewed by police and held on unrelated matters. Police said foul play was a “potential cause of death” of the person found Dec. 30 by a resident walking along on a forest service near American Creek. Police made a “tentative identification” of the body, but released no

further information until positive ID is made in an autopsy expected this week. The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has conduct of the case, but a spokesman could not be reached Monday. A friend of the family said police had called about the body found in Hope, but emphasized no positive identification had been made. Another source close to the fam-

ily said they are “very hopeful and praying” a positive ID will be made “so they can say good-bye” and have closure. The source added that although Planje was the secretary of the Gypsy Project, an organization to help the homeless, the man living with Planje at the time of his disappearance had no connection to the project as reported in earlier media reports.

Dispute with bone docs may go to mediation Jeff Nagel Black Press A mediator may be enlisted to try to resolve the nine-month-old dispute between the Fraser Health Authority and its orthopedic surgeons over the pay and coverage levels to handle on-call emergencies. Patients requiring emergency surgery for broken bones are often being transferred to a different

hospital because there’s now just one on-call orthopedic surgeon in the region to handle all such cases. The disruption has been traumatic to families – some blame the delays as aggravating factors in the deaths of their loved ones while others expecting treatment at their home hospital have ended up an hour’s drive or more away. Dr. Andrew Webb, Fraser Health’s vice-president of medi-

cine, told a November board meeting patients are being disrupted by the dispute and in some cases getting an inappropriate level of care because of delays. “They’re being forced to travel long distances as the orthopedic surgeons have organized themselves in a way that rotates the oncall services between hospitals,” Webb said. “There’s one on at a time and that one may be quite distant from the site where the

patient is.” The most serious life-and-limb emergencies continue to be handled at New Westminster’s Royal Columbian Hospital, the region’s trauma centre. But other patients – such as those with broken hips – can be bounced from Abbotsford to Surrey, as recently happened with one 89-year-old woman. Prior to last April, Fraser Health paid for eight orthopedic surgeons

Operation Red Nose numbers nearly double over last year The early predictions for a spike in the number of calls to Operation Red Nose came true this year. A total of 738 calls for a safe ride home were dispatched from the Chilliwack area, including Agassiz, Harrison and Hope. That number is way up from the 492 calls the year before.

“It was very busy this year,” confirmed RCMP Cpl. Lea-Anne Dunlop, who also volunteered with Red Nose. “I think a lot of people were doing the responsible thing and planning ahead.” Stiffer penalties for impaired driving in B.C. likely contributed to the increase in calls from motorists. What used to be a 24-hour suspension with a .05 level is now a three-day driving suspension with a fine.

“With stricter penalties in force, people took the opportunity to still go out and have a good time by arranging for a designated driver, calling a cab or Operation Red Nose,” said Dunlop. The volunteer service offering safe rides to impaired or fatigued drivers by shuttling their vehicle home for them has been growing year by year, as community awareness of it also increases. “Hopefully next year it will

be even bigger and better,” she said. Across Canada in December there were 81,022 rides provided in eight provinces by a whopping 55,381 volunteers. Because of that commitment, the holidays remained a time of celebration for many Canadian families, said organizers. In B.C, 7,660 rides were provided by 4,229 volunteers in 12 communities including Chilliwack.

It was a year that saw the invention of the escalator, and the introduction of a new game by Canadian James Naismith called basketball. The year was 1891, and with the completion of the transcontinental railway just six years earlier, growth in the Fraser Valley was accelerating. The Township of Chilliwack, formed in 1873, was blossoming into a collection of communities like Rosedale, Promontory Heights and Vedder Crossing that would one day form the City of Chilliwack. In April of that year, above a farm implement shop on Main Street, the first edition of a newspaper rolled off the presses that would provide a common voice for this burgeoning community for the next 120 years. The Chilliwack Progress began as a modest four-page broadsheet, with W.T. Jackman at its helm. Jackman had a simple philosophy: if you serve your community well, it will do well by you. The headlines were often less than spectacular, like “Nearly a fire.” But the stories told of a people finding their place in British Columbia’s emerging history. It carried the advertisements of a bustling farm community, advocated for issues like better banking, and carried news about the challenges growth brings: “At a meeting of the Chilliwack Land and Improvement Co. held in the office of S.T. McIntosh & Co. yesterday, the Co. have decided to build the tramway from Steamboat Landing to Chilliwack themselves.” There was also drama: “A team of horses belonging to Mr. Corry Ryder, which were attached to a wagon, became frightened and unmanageable and ran down Wellington street the other day at a furious pace; they were finally stopped and turned into the fence, nothing the worse for the incident. Mrs. Ryder and her little boys were the only occupants of the rig at the time of the runaway and escaped with only a severe shaking up.” The Progress also brought news of the world, like correspondence from New Westminster, Victoria, and even London. Since then, The Progress has continued to publish. Now in its 120th year, the Chilliwack Progress is British Columbia’s oldest community newspaper published continuously with the same name in the same community. Chilliwack has changed much in 120 years, when the tallest building was Cooke’s Presbyterian Church. And so have we. That four-page broadsheet has turned into a twice-weekly publication with a combined circulation of nearly 60,000. It’s complemented by a daily edition, as well as an online publication that provides up-to-the-minute breaking news coverage for Chilliwack and B.C. What hasn’t changed are our roots in the community. It is a history we take pride in and hope the community will share this year as we celebrate “120 years of Progress.” Greg Knill, editor

Park Board getting back on track Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Cultus Lake Park Board is getting back on track financially after a particularly challenging year, said park board chair Sacha Peter. “The turnaround has been remarkable,” he said. In an interview with The Progress this week, Peter touched on the improved budget situa-

tion for 2011, comparing it to the struggles of the past, when new commissioners faced a deficit situation and depleted financial reserves. The $3.9 million park board budget for 2011 includes $425,570 in capital works featuring improvements to Sunnyside Campground and roof repairs to the Cultus Lake Plaza, as well as new public works equipment.

Spending outpaced revenues in the years since 2007, Peter said, mostly due to a cash influx that never materialized from the proposed sale of 14 empty lease lots on Fir Street and First Avenue. “They were assuming it was a done deal, but those lots have not been sold yet,” said Peter. “What happened with the 2010 budgeting process, was that we saw the results of 2009 and shut down all noncritical spending.” Park board officials also devised a five-point plan to balance the budget and get back on track. “The goal was to become sustainable financially,” Peter said. “When the financial statements do come out later this year, they will show a marked improvement compared to the previous one.” The audited statements for 2009 were received by the park board in November. “Unforeseen circumstances caused a significant delay in completing the audit,” explained former park board chair

Brian Nokleby in his year-end newsletter posted online. “This was partly due to staff turnover but also many challenges were presented relating to accounting and cash handling procedures.” More ef ficient accounting practices are now in place and the 2010 audit should be right on time, he said. “As a result of improved financial management, of both revenues and expenditures, we have met and/or exceeded our 2010 budget targets,” Nokleby wrote.” That means they’ll be ending the 2010 budget year “in a much stronger” financial position and will begin replenishing reserves, he argued. Board chair Peter said he looks forward to continued progress by the board in maintaining a positive financial state. “Staff have done an excellent job turning things around, the board has done its homework and we’re on the right course.” jfeinberg@theprogress.com

Now she has so much to look forward to. hen Virginia was on her own, she lost touch with people. Aside from the holidays and occasional outings with her family, she spent a lot of time at home alone.

Twice as much food and cash was donated by Chilliwack shoppers in the second-annual “Stuff the Cruiser” campaign conducted by the RCMP. “Chilliwack always comes through,” RCMP Cpl. Lea-Anne Dunlop said. “It was wet and rainy, but there was nothing but smiles on the faces of our officers who were out there to make this happen.” RCMP cruisers staked out positions at three local grocery stores Dec. 12, and two more in Agassiz and Hope for shoppers to fill with donated food items. The donations went to food banks in each community. Fifteen pallets of food (9,420 items) were donated in Chilliwack, along with $4,577 in cash. Last year’s totals were seven pallets of food and about $1,700 in cash. In Agassiz, the backseat of the RCMP cruiser was filled three times with food, and $370 in cash was donated. In Hope, 1,710 lbs. of food and $1,463 in cash was donated.

News Bait car ‘stops them in their tracks’, say local RCMP

Established in 1987

WINTER 1 - 2011 STARTS

A 27-year-old Chilliwack man is facing auto theft charges after he was arrested in connection with a police bait car incident last Wednesday. Agassiz RCMP responded to the bait car activation at 3 p.m. and tracked the car to West Victor Drive on the Cheam First Nation reserve near Agassiz. RCMP Cpl. Lea-Anne Dunlop said a male suspect was located “near the bait car, and initially ran when police arrived on the scene.” But the suspect soon stopped running, and was taken into custody without incident. The suspect was scheduled to appear in court Thursday to face charges of theft, possession of stolen property and possession of break-in instruments. “The Bait Car Program is alive and well in the Upper Fraser Valley,” Dunlop said, and police “will continue to use this valuable program to stop auto thieves in their tracks.”

Get a handle on debt

The Chilliwack

Progress

R AESIDE

Christmas shopping is over, but it’s never a bad time to talk about household debt. In buying homes or cars simply because interest rates are relatively low right now, the debt-amassing public is rolling the dice that rate hikes either won’t come soon or won’t affect them. Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney said interest rate changes, when they come — and they will, eventually — can be brutal and farreaching. “Cheap money is not a long-term growth strategy,” he said earlier this month. His words hinted that Canada, like other countries, could be heading down the same road that set off this most recent global financial crisis. As Carney says, we’re not out of the woods yet, folks. That means we consumers — especially those paying down mortgages — need to combine fiscal restraint with common sense. Setting aside money to cover off the initial pain of a rate hike isn’t a bad plan. If you feel a binding urge to buy something, make sure you can pay cash or at least cover most of it. Even a half-point jump in the Bank of Canada rate can have dramatic effects on the amount you pay out. And let’s not forget that Canada’s annual inflation rate was higher in 2010 than it’s been in two years, at 2.4 per cent. Even if interest rates go up, the prices of things like gas and groceries likely won’t come down. While our levels of debt are growing, the picture isn’t all bleak. Investment firm BMO Nesbitt Burns says our net worth is growing at a faster rate than our debt — people are saving more and investments are growing again. Nonetheless, our personal debt load is a barometer of our financial health. Getting it under control before the big one hits could be a good plan for 2011. ~ Black Press

Research on how to be a successful ‘resolutionary’ Remember those New Year’s resolutions you made on Friday and broke on Saturday? Well, apparently you’re not alone. Those high bar goals to lose weight, stop smoking, stop drinking, clean up the planet, save more, spend less, help others, become smar ter/wiser/faster and stock up on family time can crumble around the edges very quickly without some plan B quick fixes to shore them up. A recent Angus Reid Strategies poll performed for BMO found that 96 per cent of Canadians make New Year’s resolutions. But in the to-do list there needs to be a resolution to keep the resolutions. Most folks find out that a resolution to change a bad habit (smoking, eating too much) really means changing behaviour. And that’s not as easy as it

sounds. Gyms fill with newcomers in January but are they still regulars in spring? The effort to stop smoking gets distinctly uncomfortable when nicotine withdrawal kicks in. Keeping a resolution is a trial and error event that Margaret can take a variety of techniques to EVANS stay on track, challenging will-power. Failing, though, doesn’t always mean failure; it means re-jigging how to do things better. Over the decades, a lot of research has been done by psychologists and other medical experts on the stages of change and how to make a resolution

successful. They include a) a readiness for change and having the resources and knowledge to know how to do it, b) knowing the barriers to change and what will stand in your way of success, and c) anticipating a relapse and having that plan B to deal with it. Willpower, according to British psychologist Richard Wiseman, is at the centre of this stuff. Human routines are notoriously stubborn which is why 88 per cent of resolutions can end in failure. Habits are hard to break and trying to break or change several habits all at once is a bad idea. The whole point of starting this stuff in the New Year is that you have the whole year to spread them out and work on them one at a time, or at least in a staggered sequence. Celebrating the New Year with

resolutions is one of our oldest of traditions. Who knew? Its origins go way back 4,000 years to when the ancient Babylonians celebrated their New Year at the spring equinox. In Rome, the mythical king Janus, the god of beginnings and guardian of doors and entrances, was placed at the head of the calendar (January) where, with his two faces, he could look back on past events and forward to the future. He became the symbol for ancient resolutions. The Romans re-jigged the calendar several times until around 45 BC when Julius Caesar set January 1 as the first day of the New Year with the launch of the Julian calendar. It likely wasn’t any easier to follow through on resolutions then as now. Tricks and mind-benders to get going and keep going

include not having too many resolutions in the first place and breaking them down into bitesize pieces that are achievable in stages. Rather than focusing on losing 20 pounds, focus on losing the first two pounds then the next two and so on. Rather than focusing on saving $2,000 focus on saving the first $100 then the next. Resolutions to be happier and less stressed are trickier since they involve the influence of external driving forces. Often they are coupled with more pragmatic resolutions that, if successful, bring some of that deserved happiness anyway. No one promised you easy making a behavioural change. But progression in small steps is do-able for some measurable results just in time for next year’s resolutions.

Progress

Chilliwack’s Community Newspaper Since 1891

Rate hike hard for families Re: Care home rates climb (Chilliwack Progress, Dec. 17). Thank you for writing the article about the increase in residential care rates. With all the news stories plaguing our provincial government, I thought the rate increases would go unnoticed (as the Liberals probably hoped). My mother is in a care home. In February of this year her accommodation fee went up $194. This January, it goes up again by $255. That is far from the $81 example in your article, and Mom’s income is under $22,000 per year. Last year when our great Liberal government introduced this new rate structure, I received a letter explaining that the increase would be phased in and my mother would “only� pay 50 per cent of her rate increase in 2010 (supposedly the remaining half in 2011). I was also informed that the new rate structure will ensure most clients are left with at least $275 to cover personal expenses. I was not prepared for my mom, by January, to be left with $135 after paying here “rent.� This isn’t enough to pay for her portion of the cost of her medications and other personal items. In November 2009, when II received notice of the new rate structure, I wrote to Mr. Kevin Falcon, explaining my displeasure. What I received back was basically a form letter, announcing that our health care system is “outstanding� and that we can be proud of it. At the end of this letter explaining things I already knew, I was advised to contact the case manager (the residential care co-ordinator) identified in the “rate letter.� I didn’t call her last year

because I didn’t want to take my anger out on a government employee, who probably wasn’t consulted about the rate increase. I did, however, call her earlier [last] month because of the measly amount Mom will be left with each month come January, and because the increase for 2011 is more than I was expecting. Also, in this same letter from Mr. Falcon, I read there are hardship provisions available which are designed to take into account where there is maintenance of a separate house. My mother’s house is for sale, but not yet sold, so she has the added expenses of this home, including utilities and property taxes. I was quite shocked with the options I was given by the case manager. She pointed out that in situations similar to my mom’s the family is covering the costs of the listed home until it sells. I don’t know about other families, but I am not in a position to pay those costs as well as my own. I explained this to the case manager and her second suggestion was to “work with the banks� by taking out a loan or line of credit and then pay it off after the sale of the property. Was this woman actually telling me to take my 84-year-old mother, who has Parkinson’s disease and can no longer walk, into the credit union to apply for a loan? The case manager would not give me the name of anyone else to whom I could speak. She didn’t mention anything about “reduced rates on the basis of hardship.� Turns out, a person can apply for a reduced rate, but it isn’t so easy to get. As I wrote in my letter to Mr. Falcon last year, my dad,

Businesses come through for society The Hope and Area Transition Society would like to recognize two businesses who have taken the concept of “Christmas Giving� to the next level. Gente Bella Salon and Spa and Jackson’s Steak and Seafood Grill provided our agency with generous and outstanding service. The owners and staff at both establishments did so with infinite class, grace and warmth. Our clients felt pampered, valued and respected. We were shown that thanks to businesses

like Jackson’s and Gente Bella, luxury is attainable in the Fraser Valley. We at the Hope and Area Transition Society wanted to say thank you to these amazing people who care, are open and willing to help and are invaluable in our communities. To say “Thank you� for the wonderful way we were treated does not seem to be enough. We are profoundly grateful for all these two companies have done. Hope and Area Transition Society

a Second World War veteran, worked hard to make sure that Mom could live comfortably – we’re not talking extravagance here – after he passed away. If he weren’t cremated he would be rolling over in his grave. In his (form) letter to me dated Dec. 23, 2009, Mr. Falcon explained that the increases were necessary to support ongoing improvements to the residential care system. Health authorities are required to use this revenue to increase staffing levels for nursing and other health professionals and the amount of oneon-one care provided by clients. The staff at my mom’s care home are wonderful. But I have seen no increase in their numbers. There is one nurse for each floor, responsible for over 30 residents, and two care aides for each wing (15-17 residents). The doctor is a very busy man (he goes to other care homes, as well as having his own practice). When he’s away (sometimes for four to six weeks), the “fill-in� won’t make any changes to medication or prescribe anything new without his approval. I wonder what will happen when his doctor retires. Will one be found to replace him? I invite other family members who are also struggling with increased residential care rates to contact their case managers, you local MLAs, or Mr. Colin Hansen, the current minister of health services. I know the Liberal government is preoccupied with leadership woes, but that doesn’t excuse them from dealing with issues such as this.

Looking for lost ring After having major surgery (kidney removed) my husband dropped a few pounds and his wedding band was loose. On Friday Dec. 31/10 while shopping at Super Store and Safeway the ring fell off his finger without his notice. He contacted both stores but so far it was not found. This is just a plain wedding band with no inscriptions. It does not have much monetary value, however it means a lot to both of us. If any one finds it we would be happy to get it back.

News

Patient transfers continue due to reduced on-call coverage ON CALL from p3 But the move prompted the surgeons to designate just one of them to be on call at a time rather than eight, triggering regular patient transfers to the on-call surgeon. Fraser Health’s most recent offer was to reinstate level 1 payment but for four orthopedic surgeons per day rather than eight, according to Dr. Peter Blair, Fraser Health’s program medical director for surgery. The move would restore full pay for being on call but mean the surgeons would be available at only half as many hospitals as a year ago, meaning some transfers would continue. “We don’t think that would be too onerous,”

Blair said. “Right now, all they have is one or thopedic surgeon on call for the whole region and they’re managing.” That’s expected to be one of the proposals under consideration when a mediator can be appointed and convene the two sides. Dr. David Wickham of the B.C. Orthopaedic Association said the issue is not about money. “The fact is that they’re (Fraser Health) lowering the standard of care,” he said. W ickham said Fraser Health is the only region in the province that currently operates at MOCAP level 2. Patients should be entitled to a uniform standard across B.C., he said. Blair maintains

the change is logical and the most urgent response times and pay levels should be reser ved for more critical on-call specialists, such as cardiologists and abdominal surgeons who handle more life-threatening cases. Fraser Health is also in a dispute with ophthalmologists over pay levels for being on call to handle eye emergencies. Some ophthalmologists have refused to provide on-call coverage and Fraser has countered by taking away elective surgery operating room time from the hold-out surgeons and providing it to those who have agreed to continue to be on call under the new payment levels. – with files from Vikki Hopes

Green Games among the year’s top weather stories Jeff Nagel Black Press The balmy springlike temperatures in February that literally made the Vancouver Winter Olympics the “greenest Games ever” heads Environment Canada’s list of the year’s top Canadian weather stories. The rain and high freezing levels that opened the Games had organizers trucking snow in from Manning Park and that was just part of the frantic fight against Mother Nature, the weather office said. Snow-star ved Cypress “looked better suited for mudwrestling than snowboarding”, the list says, despite the use of straw bales and wood, dry ice embedded in moguls and urea spread on snow to preserve it. The winter proved

the mildest ever – warmer than the oncea-century worst case scenario Vanoc prepared for, according to the list, with temperatures soaring above 10 degrees in January for 13 days. “Vancouver has never seen a warmer stretch of winter weather than the 31-day period ending on Feb. 9, with records dating back 114 years.” Vancouver was already the warmest bid city in Winter Olympic history. The outlook seemed good in November and December of 2009, when plenty of snow fell on local mountains, but that gave way to Pineapple Express storms in a January that felt more like April. A few days into the Games, a high pressure system took hold, bringing clear skies and mild dry weather for a solid week.

“In spite of the horrendous weather leading up to the Opening Ceremonies and continuing through the first three days of the Winter Games, the event was a renowned success,” Environment Canada concludes. “When the weather changed, so did the mood, culminating in an emotional uniting of the entire nation.” The list also includes Hurricane Igor’s pounding of Newfoundland (#2) and the costliest hailstorm in the country’s history (#10). See complete list at www. ec.gc.ca. In B.C., Environment Canada notes it was another deadly year for avalanches, which killed 11 people in this province. The worst fatal accident happened in March near Revelstoke, when a powerful avalanche during a snowmobile competition killed two people and

injured 30 more. Other notable B.C. weather stories: ■ The Good Friday wind storm that lashed the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island, knocking out power, closing roads, sinking boats and canceling ferry sailings. ■ The June 13 Oliver landslide, which took out orchards and vineyards, caused evacuations of residents and closed the Okanagan Highway. The 200,000-square-metre debris flow is blamed on heavy rains in the preceding weeks that overtopped the dam at Testalinden Lake. ■ Gloom in May and June that unleashed the worst year ever for plant diseases. Gardens everywhere were afflicted by fungal diseases, powdery mildew and more insects, all brought on by weeks of sunless skies, cool temperatures and high humidity. ■ Heat waves in early July and midAugust melted records at many weather stations. Victoria topped 33 degrees both times and Chilliwack set a new record of 35.7 C. Air quality in the Lower Mainland worsened during the hot spells. The temperatures jacked up the forest fire danger and thick smoke from wildfires in August became a serious health concern across much of B.C. ■ A massive Aug. 6 landslide near Pemberton was triggered by a late melting of snow and ice on a nearby glacier. More than a dozen campers were evacuated by helicopter after being trapped by flood waters at a campground north of the city. ■ Twice the normal rainfall in the fall left two-thirds of the Fraser Valley potato and other root crops rotting in the ground, with losses pegged at $30 million. Delta received a third of its normal annual rainfall in just 40 days from Aug. 31 to early October.

Life& Leisure Olympics of the trades industry The Chilliwack

Progress

Katie

Bartel

604.702.5575 • kbartel@theprogress.com

Katie Bartel The Progress A Chilliwack teen is sharpening his skills for the Olympics of the trades industry. Michael Christensen,19, won a spot on Team Canada to compete at the 2011 WorldSkills competition in London, England this spring after he swept the board with golds at the Fraser Valley regionals, B.C. provincials and Canadian nationals last year. He was the only competitor in the mechanical engineering design category to be chosen for Team Canada. But it didn’t come easy. Just weeks before one of his competitions, Christensen was worried he wouldn’t have a chance to practice his skills as his school didn’t use the same design software he had become compatible with. Christensen switched software programs last year after doing his high school practicum at RMS Ross, a Chilliwack company that designs and manufactures mining machinery. It was there that he was introduced to Solid Edge, a 3D computer-aided design (CAD) software. Solid Edge was different from the 2D AutoCAD software used in his mechanical CAD course at Sardis secondary. It was more commercial and user-friendly, Christensen said. He saw the benefits and wanted to keep using it. Some teachers might have shook their heads and told him there wasn’t enough money in the budget, or stood their ground and said every other student was using the AutoCAD software, he could to. But Greg Barber, drafting and design teacher at Sardis secondary, didn’t see the benefit of such statements. He had a student who was genuinely interested in the industry and who was excelling in class and at competitions. Barber was going to do whatever it took to hold that kid’s interest. Barber contacted Ed Dolejsi, president of C3D Solutions, a distributor of design software, and asked for his assistance. Dolejsi, whose company has worked with other schools in B.C., contacted Siemens, the manufacturer of Solid Edge, and a deal was made.

Mike Christensen — seen here with two designs he’s worked on, one he created himself — is an autoCAD genius who will be competing in the WorldSkills 2011 competition in London, England this fall. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Siemens donated $25,000 worth of Solid Edge software to Sardis secondary. With Solid Edge in his back pocket, Christensen felt confident going into the regional and provincial competitions. He won gold at both. The nationals, however, was a bit more intimidating. The nationals was a two-day competition that was split into four projects with a three-hour time limit for each. In 2009 Christensen had also won gold at the regionals and provincials but only managed a bronze at the nationals. The pressure was on. With his earbuds snug in his ears, and the music humming along, he tuned out the competition around him and focused on the

problems at hand. He redesigned drafts, created models, and pieced together a 3D model of a metal shrinker through a set of drafts, not knowing at first what it was he was creating.

gold medal – and a spot on Team Canada. And with that, more challenges. The world competition does not accept the use of Solid Edge, as Autodesk Inventor is the sponsor.

It was almost like ke putting a jigsaw puzzle p together without knowing what you were making ~ Michael Christensen

“It was almost like putting a jigsaw puzzle together without knowing what you were making,” Christensen said. He mastered the puzzles perfectly winning him yet another

Co-workers at RMS Ross, where he’s now employed, have been helping him learn the new software, but Christensen hopes to hire an expert trainer. Going from one software to

another is “like going from a car that’s automatic to a standard without knowing anything about it,” he said. He’ll soon start training full-time, 50 to 60 hours a week, and is seeking sponsorships, as he won’t be able to work while training. “It’s a full-time commitment,” he said. “It’s going to eat up my social life.” But it’s worth it. He’s improving his resume, gaining experience, and getting his face known worldwide in the mechanical engineering design industry. Anyone interested in training or sponsoring Christensen can contact him through email at mike6349@hotmail.com WorldSkills 2011 London is from Oct. 5 to 8. kbartel@theprogress.com

Banged up Bruins trounced by Giants

PUCK PREVIEW

Eric J. Welsh, The Progress With the list of missing (Roman Horak, Robin Soudek, Steven Hodges, Brandon Magee) and injured (Brandon Manning, Curt Gogol, Jesse Pauls, Brendan Persley, Mike Forsyth) nearly as large as the list of the healthy, the Chilliwack Bruins likely had a gloomy outlook as they hosted the Vancouver Giants Sunday night. Few teams could lose their best defenceman and half their top six forwards and expect to beat anyone, let alone the perennial powerhouses from Van-City. So a 6-2 end result was consistent with hockey logic as the Bruins fell to a largely healthy Vancouver squad at Prospera Centre. “Obviously the missing players affect our game somewhat, but we can’t use that as an excuse,” said Bruins blueliner Mitch Topping afterwards, saying what hockey players are supposed to say when offered an excuse. “It just comes down to other guys stepping up and finding a way to win.” Fair enough Mitch. I’ll say it. If the Bruins aren’t missing nine regulars, the result of that game is completely different. As it is, Chilliwack put up a pretty good fight for 40 minutes before fading in the final frame. Kevin Sundher got the Bruins on the board, scoring at 9:34 of the first period. The Buffalo Sabres draft pick took a feed from Dylen McKinlay and got a step on Vancouver forward Brendan Rowinski. Sundher slipped a backhander through the legs of Giants keeper Mark Segal, and then followed the puck into the net. The goal was Sundher’s 12th of the year.

HEAD-TO-HEAD The Bruins are 6-8-1-2 all-time against the Thunderbirds, with a record of 4-4-0-1 within the friendly confines of Prospera Centre.

LAST MEETING The Bruins played a forgettable game against the T-Birds Oct. 9, losing 6-3 at Prospera Centre. Ryan Howse and Roman Horak gave the Bruins a 2-1 lead through 20 minutes. But Seattle scored two in the second and three in the third to erase the deficit, led by a Brendan Rouse hat-trick.

NHL PROSPECTS CALVIN PICKARD - G Drafted by the Colorado Avalanche in the second round (49th ova) of the 2010 NHL entry draft.

ing) and Blair Wentworth (checking from behind) in the box, Brendan Gallagher went to work in the left corner. The Montreal Canadiens prospect spotted Zach Hodder sneaking down from the point, and fed him a pass in the slot. Chilliwack netminder Lucas Gore couldn’t get post to post fast enough to thwart the Giants blueliner, who potted his first of the year at 19:04. Vancouver grabbed their first lead of the game 12:40 into period two on a strike by Dalton Sward. Veteran D-man Neil Manning earned the primary assist with a hot shot that Gore could only get a piece of. The puck dropped into the blue paint behind him, and Sward swooped in for the tap in, his seventh of the year. Chilliwack had two excellent chances to tie, but failed to hit the net on both.

THE NEXT HOME OPPONENT Chilliwack Seattle Bruins Thunderbirds

AT

Sunday - Propsera Centre - 5:00 p.m.

Topping had a clear breakaway from the Vancouver blueline in, but missed left with a blocker-side shot. Moments later, Ryan Howse cut in off a faceoff and had Segal down and out. But the puck rolled off his stick and slid inches wide of the left post. McKinlay succeeded in pulling the Bruins even at 16:55, scoring his second of the year on a penalty shot. Hooked by Hodder on a short-handed breakaway, McKinlay was directed to center ice by referee Trevor Hansen. The Langley native kept it simple, beating Segal blocker side. But with the Bruins still killing the penalty (Tyler Stahl for boarding), Vancouver regained the lead. Again, Manning was the playmaker with a cross-ice feed to ex-Portland Winter Hawk Spencer Bennett, who calmly buried

his 15th of the year. “It was good for McKinlay, big for him and big for us at that point in the game,” Topping said. “But then they get a greasy one, a lucky bounce and a wide open cage. That really cut us down.” Penalties were a major issue for the Bruins, who gave up three power play goals on seven penalty kills. Referees Hansen and Trent Knorr might have been quick with the whistle on a couple calls, but it’s still a red flag. “Yeah, there were some weaker calls in there but we’ve got to stay disciplined,” Topping said. “If we’re moving our feet and battling hard, we probably get a couple more calls going our way.” Vancouver got the insurance goal 2:31 into period three on a goal by Nathan Burns. Rowinski got the assist with a shot from the

right wing. Gore kicked the rebound right to Burns who had nothing but net to shoot at for his sixth. Burns scored again at 11:06 and Sward wrapped up the scoring at 13:16 as the Giants improved to 18-17-1-4 and the Bruins dropped to 17-17-2-1. The three stars were Manning (first), Sward (second) and McKinlay (third). The Bruins are back in action Friday night, visiting the Kamloops Blazers in another key B.C. division tilt. “Things go fast between now and the playoffs and we’ve got to start getting some of these points,” Topping noted. “It’s so tight, in our division especially. You’ve got to get the points against teams in your division, and what we do now affects us in March.” Catch a trade deadline preview in Friday’s Progress sports section.

CHILLIWACK

OMMUNITY SPORTS REVIEW

Rosedale’s Rockers rock ladies soccer Over the next few weeks, the Chilliwack Progress will be publishing a series of articles written by Sardis secondary school student reporters. Today’s article is written by Grade 10 student reporter Megan Blaschek, who takes a look at a pioneering soccer team. In the beginning there was one team that started it all, the Rosedale Rockers. Several years ago, a group of local women ages 30 and up formed a team and started taking on teams of ladies 20 and up. However, despite their enthusiastiam, the players were disappointed as they lost the majority of their games. Amongst the team, it was decided that they would organize a separate league. They advertised an open house, looking for ladies over 30 with the desire to play spring soccer. To their excitement, over 80 potential players gathered at the open house, showing interest in playing the sport. The following spring, they donned their soccer cleats and jerseys at Vedder middle school, waiting for their first game to begin. Eight additional

teams had been added to the fledgling league. “We thought we were in good shape after playing the 20-yearolds,” said Rockers team member Emma Blaschek. “We thought we would be a team to be reckoned with, but in actual fact we finished third from last!” Blaschek has been playing for four consecutive years with the Rockers, and when looking back to the first year admits, “We had our work cut out for us!” Now four years later, many ‘soccer moms’ are playing soccer for themselves, joined by their children cheering them along on the sidelines, rather than the other way around. “The game for most of the ladies is about getting exercise, socializing and most importantly staying safe while playing,” said Blaschek. Playing on a full-sized field, injuries have been prevalent throughout the soccer seasons. From rolled ankles to pulled tendons, these ladies have seen it all. They have had to face the brutal realities of the sport, up close and personal. “It’s upsetting,” commented Cheryl Hagen, the team manager of the Rockers. “It impacts your everyday life and

you feel bad letting your team down.” “But at the end of the day it’s not about winning, it’s about camaraderie” Hagen added.

“You’re doing it together. We are all doing it together.” The fall soccer season concluded just before Christmas, leav-

ing Hagen and teammates Sue Klinck, Heidi Wibe, and Linda Peters to enjoy a well-deserved break after slogging through the mud, rain

and frigid fall/winter temperatures. The team is now preparing for the spring season and looking for reinforcements. To sign up for the

Cascades sweep Wolf Pack Cascade men cold in California

The University of the Fraser Valley Cascades women’s basketball team swept a two game exhibition series with the Thompson Rivers University Wolf Pack, winning the opener 78-43 and the rematch 63-56. Chilliwack secondar y school grad Courtney Bartel led the Cascades in the game-one rout, dumping in a game high 22 points. Bartel and fellow

Chilliwackian Alyssa Gaukel both had nine points in the first half as the Cascades pulled into the break with a 19-point cushion, leading 36-17. Mission’s Aieisha Luyken poured in 10 second half points and Chilliwack’s Sarah Wierks snagged 14 rebounds to lead UFV on the boards. The Wolf Pack got off to a fast start in the rematch, leading by six points (12-6) after one quarter. But UFV went bombsaway in the second quarter, using three-pointers to build a 33-22 half-time lead. Gaukel, the fifth year veteran, led all UFV scorers with 20 points. Winnipeg’s Tessa Klassen added 18 points and Wierks 13 as

seven different Cascades scored at least two points in the victory. Luyken pulled down 11 rebounds as UFV registered 40 for the game. “I am very happy with our team’s play,” said UFV head coach Al Tuchscherer. “We are playing with confidence as we go into the second half of the Canada West schedule.” The Cascades now turn their attention to Canada West regular season play, travelling to Calgar y this weekend to face the Dinosaurs. UFV currently ranks eighth in the 13-team circuit with a 6-6 record. They trail the top team, the University of Alberta, by four games. Get more at www.canadawest.org.

The UFV Cascade men’s basketball team dropped a 73-44 decision to the Biola University Eagles (NAIA) in exhibition action Dec. 30. The game was played in La Mirada, California — the second of three against American opposition. The Cascades started off hot, building an early six point lead and holding a 16-13 edge late in the first half. But the Eagles came alive and showed why they have the top ranked defence in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. The Eagles held UFV to eight points the rest of the half, taking a 17 point lead into the intermission. Biola continued to pressure UFV in the second half, and the Cascades shot a dismal 29 per cent from the floor. Coquitlam native Sam Freeman was the only Cascade to hit double figures, leading UFV with 11 points. James Elliott (Perth, West Australia) and Zeon Gray (Los Angeles, CA) each chipped in with

eight points. Gray led UFV with six total rebounds as the Cascades pulled down 27 boards for the game. “We had some very positive defensive possessions, but they are a solid team and wore us out throughout the game. Our goal on the trip is to get our legs back after the holiday break, and be ready for 12 big second semester games,” said UFV head coach Barnaby Craddock. Gray had a similarly solid effort the day before, recording 15 points, five assists and three steals in a heartbreaking 59-57 loss to the Hope IU Royals. UFV had a 37-24 halftime lead in this one, only to see the Royals chip away and sink the winning basket with five seconds on the clock. Freeman had 13 points and Joel Friesen (Abbotsford) 12 in the loss. The Cascades finished off their California tour on Dec. 30, dropping a 79-66 decision to Azusa PU.

A promising start came to a disappointing end for a pair of 16-year-old Chilliwack Bruin rookies at the World U-17 Hockey Championships. Playing for Team Pacific at the 10-team tournament, Magee and Hodges helped their team to a 3-1 record in round-robin play. But the team suffered a crushing defeat in a semi-final game against the United States on Monday, losing 6-5 at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg. Magee got Team Pacific off to a solid start, scoring his third of the tournament just 73 seconds in. But the U-S answered with five straight to lead 5-1 early in the second period. Team Pacific rallied and tied the game on a pair of third period tallies by Moose Jaw Warrior Morgan Reilly. But Nicolas Kerdiles

✞ Obituaries DUNBAR Trudy

ENNS Peter

June 15, 1915 - Dec. 29, 2010 It is with sadness that we announce the death of our father, Peter Enns, who died peacefully ENNS on 29 December 2010 surrounded by his family. Peter was born in Arkadak, South Russia, the second of seven children born to Jacob and Maria (Paetkau) Enns. The family immigrated to Canada in 1926 and settled in Chortitz, Manitoba. This is where Peter helped his father farm. In 1936, he got the urge to leave home and headed to Alberta where he and his friend, Ike Dyke, hoed sugar beets. In the fall of 1936, the two headed to BC via rail in November through Crows’ Nest Pass arriving in Chilliwack to find no snow, but beautiful weather. They made their way to Peter’s grandparents in what, at that time, was known as Sumas, later Greendale. Peter worked odd jobs before he and his two brothers, Dave and John, started a store known as Enns’ Brothers General Store. They opened their store on the 21 of June 1947 only to be flooded out on 1 June, 1948. They rebuilt and

Trudy Dunbar passed away January 1, 2011 in Chilliwack, B.C. at age 91. She was DUNBAR born July 15, 1919 in New Westminster, B.C. and lived in Chilliwack, B.C. for many years. Trudy was very creative, in her spare time she enjoyed doing crafts. She is survived by loving husband Frank Dunbar, children Marilyn Kalyn, Rick Dunbar (Laurie), Carol Dunbar, Ron Dunbar (Flo), sister Gladys Sutton, nephew Dave Sutton (Lynn), neice Diane Leroux (Morris), sister-in-law Dorothy Dunbar, grandchildren Mike Therrien, Ray Thierrien (Beth), Lynette Gardner (Chris), Leanne Lowther, Glen Wallington, Tusha Dunbar (Darryl), Tarja Holt (Mike), great grandchildren Denis, Kelsey, Melissa, Tammy, Marina, Dawnson, Sean, Shaye, Jase, Ryly and Brodie.

soon the two brothers departed and Peter became the sole owner. He operated the store for 30 years selling in 1977. After which he and his son Ernie went into the sausage (Valley Maid) business for 10 years before Peter retired. In 1999 Peter and Susan moved to Menno Terrace in Abbotsford. Peter was predeceased by his parents, Jacob and Maria, brothers Jake, Abe, Dave and John as well as sister Mary; also one greatgrandchild Joshua Enns. He is survived by his wife, Susan, of 69 years, and son Ernie, his wife Evelyn, their children Diana Sagert, Darrin, Bradina, and his favorite great granddaughter Avaya.
